Abstract

LIMA, Lais Clark. The realization of Lutzomyia intermedia, a possible case of preadaptation. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1986, vol.20, n.1, pp. 102-104. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101986000100008.

Lutzomyia intermedia has for a long time been found in areas which have long time been settled. Data on sandflies caught with different baits at different places led to believe that this species is preadapted to open environments and to feeding on mamals, including man.

Keywords : Leishmaniasis, micocutaneous; Lutzomyia intermedia; Ecology.
